This Canyon is Grand

Continuing with the theme of trips from the past, here are some pictures from our trip to Grand Canyon. It is unbelievable the feeling that comes over you when you see just how massive the canyon is for the first time. It almost looked surreal, like a group of people holding up a huge painting in the background for the world to see.

We were fortunate enough to make the trek to the south (I think?) rim for sunrise over the lip. I have never seen the sky take on so many beautiful colors in such a short period of time. We even got to experience a mule deer playing chicken with us in the middle of the road. It won, we waited for it to move along. It eventually did. We then took a drive to Red Rocks and then headed back to Phoenix. More pictures in my flickr account so check them out! All pictures were taken with my point and shoot.
